October 5, 1999

The FIRST P:TL novel has been shipped!
It's by no means a literary masterpiece but I found it to be in the vein of the series and it would have made an interesting episode, had it be filmed. If you have also read the book and would like to review it, click here.

DEREK DE LINT CHAT TRANSCRIPT - posted just hours after the 1.5 hour unmoderated chat on Sunday, October 3rd.

June 1999

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but for those who do not already know, the answer to "Will there be a Season Five?" is no. This is straight from TPTB at Trilogy Entertainment - they make the series for MGM (Sci Fi has rights to air it, they don't make it.) Please do not email me to ask why Sci Fi did not renew, since I do not know. And this does NOT mean you won't see P:TL ever after Season Four since there are plans to reruns all seasons on Sci Fi.

On the good side, we've still got two-thirds of season four to go! :-)
Check out the season four schedule and info, updated weekly.

May 3, 1999

A month of repeats is upon us, so those who missed some of the first few eps can get them taped and we can rehash the eps again on the LJs and in chat's on Fridays.

The final taping of the last episode of season four and possibly the last episode *ever* of Poltergeist The Legacy happened in April. I know, it sounds so impossible given how great season four is compared to season three! Contracts are up but Sci Fi *does* have an option to renew for a dozen more (hmm, this sounds similar to the deal they had with The Outer Limits) but unless there is an outpouring from the fans or a huge spike in the ratings real soon....well, "that's all folks!" From past years, I remember the contract negotiations going on throughout May so we've got time to be heard. Sci Fi's programming email address is program@www.scifi.com but I urge you all to write and send your comments and concerns via snailmail as well. (Tangible evidence of P:TL fans for TPTB. )

The SciFi Channel
1230 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10020
Telephone: (212) 408-9100

I know hearing that a fav show might not be renewed tends to put a fan a wee bit into defensive mode but when writing to Sci Fi in support of this series, remain positive and state your case.

Season Four P:TL Pics of Derek de Lint as Derek Rayne - pics of the precept from every episode he has appeared in so far. Pics for The Painting will go up sometime today.

Features removed: Polterdiversions, Postcards and Interactive Story due to lack of webspace which is needed for other data, episode info and fanfic on legacyweb.com - I'll try to put up the postcards feature on thelegacy.org in the future. LegacyWeb's webhost provider is one of the most highly rated and I enjoy the quality of customer service but I can't justify spending more than I already am for more space. Sorry! :-)

January 1, 1999 - Happy New Year!!!

Season Four: Sci-Fi has their plate full and the news is P:TL's new season won't be aired until March. This is probably for the best since it gives more time for production/post-production and we probably won't have any month-long dry spells of no-new-eps like we used to get on Showtime during Season Three! To discuss this, check out the topic "Anticipating Season Four on Sci-FI" in the Assemblage.

October 1, 1998

A quick teaser about Season Four that I received from Mark Stern of Trilogy: Kristin will be coming back for Season Four, but only briefly. Something's going to happen to Kristin at mid-season that should surprise everyone! The cliffhanger at the end of last season is addressed in a two-parter which opens the new season. Alex questions her place in the Legacy, and Derek ends up facing an old foe.

September 15, 1998

It's the month of my 7th wedding anniversary and the month that two years ago I started up the First Unofficial P:TL webpages. So it's only fitting that I bring into the webworld (finally, it's only taken me a slow 5 months +) a sister for LegacyWeb called TheLegacy.Org to house some extra-special sections for the fans.

Now I can get back to work on renovating LegacyWeb and adding lots more info to The Legacy/San Francisco House, The P:TL Episode Guide, Legacy Archives, Cast & Crew and more!!!!

Let's get Derek de Lint, Martin Cummins and Patrick Fitzgerald in the Internet Male Stars Top 100!
CLICK HERE to vote (you'll have to type in names.)
Don't forget to vote for "Poltergeist: The Legacy" on the
other Top 100 list!

If you are interested, there is a discussion mailing list available to talk all about Derek de Lint at your leisure. For info, click here.

And I actually got ambitious enough to update my own "Clarianna" webpages! Not much, but I figure after a year I should probably change references to dates and such! :-)

July schedule for Season III Episode on Showtime

Transcript of the AOL Jay Cappe chat (just Jay, not the audience.)

Some of us were wondering about how the move to SciFi Channel might affect the production of the next season of P:TL so I asked. Good news! Read the following answer from Mark Stern (Trilogy Production Executive): "We are trimming our budget for next season, but not in any ways that will be apparent to an audience. All the cuts are coming from 'above-the-line' and administrative cuts, not in production monies. So far, we have had no input from the Sci-Fi channel, and really don't anticipate any. - Mark"

Note about the Legacy-Journals discussion mailing list: Subscriptions now have to be approved by the list-owner after you answer a few questions that will be sent after you send in your initial subscription request. I'll try and get this process posted to the mailing list page so you can do the Questions before subbing.

Sherri's "Divine Intervention" & Selena's "Moment of Truth"

Mary W's "Knights Templar" and Grace's "If Wishes Were Fishes"

A few new questions on the Polls page and the "Fav Character" one was deleted and divided up into Fav Male/Fav Female (and I added Sloan back for those who asked) so that whoever keeps spamming the poll by picking Kat all the time won't mess up the poll on the P:TL guys at least. (Kat's a good character but I don't believe she's the no. 1 fav amongst the fans which is how it was looking on that poll sometimes!)

Reminder:
GO POST YOUR Qs NOW to the celeb boards (see URLs below.)

The Official Poltergeist Website now has it's Legacy Houses (London, Cairo, Paris, Moscow, & Tokyo) section up and running. It requires that you register yourself with a login name and password to go to one (or more) of the Houses. Once in there, you will find five webpages: a list of links to psychic/paranormal websites, small BB and postcards, downloadables (screensaver, icons, wallpaper), missions & page for announcements.
Tip: Once you're at a URL for a page, like the bb, all you have to do is change the name of the city in the URL to hop over to it instead of having to type in your login/password everytime.

TVGuide has four celeb boards up for Q&A between viewers and
the following actors. Order goes from newest board up to the oldest:

Helen Shaver (Rachel) <-- just up today!
Patrick Fitzgerald (Philip)
Robbi Chong (Alex)
Martin Cummins (Nick)
Read: how celebrity boards work.

Christmas postcards now available!

And I have a spinning "L" on my welcome.htm page - that's all!

John Walsh over on TVGuide Online has given us advanced warning of a couple guests they'll be having on the BBS there:

They'll begin taking questions for Robbi Chong ("Alex")

Keep on eye on the P:TL BB there for the URL(s) to those special temporary boards to ask the actors our questions. When they are up, please read others posts so you don't ask too many duplicate questions and do NOT post your snailmail addy or phone number - major security risk for you since those are public forums.
